I also had a few problems with charging,as the batteries that came with the product were completely drainded,so i need to charge them in another charger 1st (for about 30mins) another gripe was that the batteries advertised were not the ones that actually came with it,i.e as advertised were 2650mAh but were actually 2500mAh,here is some info on the product.
The Energizer Portable is a highly advanced battery charger which will give many years of trouble free continuous use when used correctly.
The charger is designed specifically for high performance Nickel Metal Hydride batteries of over 1300mah for AA and 800mah AAA Cells. Lower capacity cells should not be used.Charging times are approximately 2 Hours for 2000mah AAs and 2.5 Hours for 850mah AAAs.Charging batteries in this device could not be easier as the charging process is fully automated once the charging pods are inserted into the base. The charger will charge up to 8 cells left unattended, charging one pod at a time.
In order to get the best from the charging process it is important that only batteries of the same size, capacity and level of discharge are charged in an individual pod at the same time. Each pod will charge either 2 or 4 AA or AAA batteries.The main components of the charger are,
UK 3 Pin plug in mains transformer which is of World Wide Voltage 100 to 240V, so with the use of a suitable adaptor will enable you to use the charger wherever in the world you may be as long as there is an available mains electric supply. Output of the transformer is 12V 1A.Base for the Charging Pods.Battery charging Pods which will hold and charge either 2 or 4 AA or AAA batteries.

The charger consists of a UK 13 amp 3 pin plug which houses the transformer. The lead from this plug then plugs in to the plastic base unit (12 v 1 amp output) and the 2 x plastic battery pods drop in to the base unit. To charge just plug in to a wall socket that's it.

On the plus side:

1) The charger is light, fairly compact and can be broken down in to its base units making it easy to travel with.

2) This charger has 2 removable pods which hold 4 batteries each and comes supplied with 2x AA 2650mAh cells & 2x AAA 1000mAh cells.

3) Each pod has 2 x toggle bars inside which allows you to convert between AA size and AAA size batteries, so you could theoretically have a mix of AA & AAA in a single pod. Or so you may think, but actually you can't please read on.

4) There is an indicator on each pod which shows the state of the charge, red, red amber for charging and sold green for fully charged. Nice and simple

5) Charge times are as stated, 3hr per pod which is not bad

6) The unit is easy to use. Just plug in and away you go.

So on the whole it sounds as good as you are going to get, as an all round value for money proposition, however when I tried to charge 2 x AA & 2 x AAA in one pod it did not work, no charging status lights nothing.

When I tried a mixture of AA batteries of different capacities i.e. some 2500mAH and some 2100mAH in one pod it did not work.

So I was about to through it away as I thought it was broken until I read a review on Amazon touching on this issue. Putting matching higher capacity batteries back in the pods got it working again.

There for the down side is that if you have a mixed set of batteries capacities, batteries of poor condition, and batteries with low mAH ratings you could quite probably find this charger problematic or even totally useless.

3.0 out of 5 stars flashing Leds! 29 April 2009
Verified Purchase
2 things to be aware of with this product - Whilst it has space for charging 8 batteries it only charges 4 at a time so for a full 8 the charging time is six hours. Secondly the LED charge indicators can be red, amber , green and red and green flashing. The instructions give no indication as to what the different colours mean . I think red means charging , and green means charged but as for amber and red/green flashing i have no idea. The batteries seem to charge OK though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Energizer ACCU charger 15 May 2009
I exchanged this charger because it would not charge my stock of batteries whitch are all aaa size less than 1000 mAh. the exchange charger has the same problem but I have found that if I use batteries of 1000mAh or more it works OK. I now have to try and change all my batteries or go back to my old 2 at a time charger.This new charger is most disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars How to avoid the flashing red-green LED problem 18 Jun 2011
By JP
Verified Purchase
Several of the previous reviews explain that a flashing red-green LED means that the charger does not like your batteries or some reason, e.g. if they are rated at less than 1000mAh.

To get around this, find out which ones the charger does not like, and put two of them in a charging pod with two batteries that the charger *does* like: hey presto: the charger will charge both pairs of batteries!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product 3 Jun 2009
This product is really easy to use and compact. There is actually a guide to the flashing lights -- inside the battery compartment.

Red=charging
Yellow=waiting
Green=done
Combination=batteries in the different sides of the compartment have different statuses (I assume).
